Why offer a CS-mount camera for Professional Broadcast (AND OTHER applications)?
When using miniature cameras in Professional Broadcast, customers often request lenses with a wide angle of view. There are very few high quality high definition wide angle C-mount lenses available. However there is a much broader selection of wide angle CS-mount lenses available. CS-mount cameras are also more flexible, accepting C-mount lenses by using a low cost 5mm CS-C mount adapter.
We have many years experience sourcing, specifying and supplying C, CS and S-mount (M12) lenses dealing directly with lens manufacturers to find the very best quality lenses for our camera range and customers' requirements.
There are a lot of good quality CS-mount lenses available, mainly manufactured for the security / surveillance industry for use with megapixel IP cameras. The volume of lenses sold have economies of scale giving cost savings compared to C-mount lenses. They also tend to be of smaller and lighter construction making them ideal for minicam use.
